I can respect that viewpoint. So what do you propose to do with
existing modules like optparse that aren't required to make platform
independent applications and are out of date and basically
unmaintained? One option would be to remove them, but that's probably
too drastic. Another option would be to add documentation to them
warning that they're out of date and pointing users to alternative
external libraries.
